Make Money with Blogging: Where to start?
You all know what a Blog is. It’s your online place where you post stories, articles, reviews, etc. If you own a Blog, with a decent amount of visitors, you can monetize your blog. I give you information on how to make a blog (its easy), and how to make money with blogging.
Ok, you want to earn money with a blog, so here’s what you are going to do:
- Get a blog
- Fill the blog with content
- Get visitors to your blog
- Make money from your blog
Let’s start with getting a blog:
I want to start blogging:
1.) Decide what you want to Blog about.
|Traveling? Fitness? Health? Games? Sport? Fashion? SEO? Webdesign? Software? Cooking? Photography? Music? Lifestyle? Relationships? Movies?|
2.) Decide for a blogging platform and get a host
This very Website and millions of other famous blogs and websites are created with WordPress. WordPress is a leading software to create your own blog. The software doesn’t even need to be installed on your computer, you will install WordPress on your Webhost, and customize your blog through your browser!
|WordPress has been downloaded over 72 million times and is used by many popular blogs and websites (and its free!). I recommend using it for your first blog. (This site is made with wordpress ;)) If you want your own, professional blog, you should invest a few bucks in a paid hoster, and from my personal experience I recommend to you the WebHostingHub. You’ll get a host, a domain (yourblog.com) and 1-Click-Install WordPress ready to get you started blogging! And all that for a reasonable price.|
